Writers Beware

__________ Spelling
  • Don’t trust spell-check to interpret your connotation. Use a dictionary.
__________ Capitalization
  • Know the rules and obey them.
  • Essentials of English; p. 2-3, 134-135
__________ Punctuation
  • Avoid overuse of commas and exclamation points. Properly punctuate quotes.
  • Essentials of English: p. 119-139
__________ Manuscript properly formatted
  • Editors appreciate a double-spaced manuscript with one-inch margins.

Be sure to read the publisher’s submission guidelines. Not all publishers have the same requirements. Read them and reread them again.
